    Olha's Note:

    Here is a different way to prepare ground beef. Most of the year this recipe is referred to as Slavinken, except in the spring when It is referred to as "Salad Birds," on menus in hotels in the Netherlands.

      So simple and so good. The only thing I did different was to mix the ingredients in with the meat about 7 hours before shaping and wrapping with bacon. This way the meat was more flavorful. Thank you. Will be a repeat offender in our home.

      The meet was very good but the sauce was way too greasy and had very little flavor. Maybe our ground pork was too fatty? I will try it again with a few different twists in the gravy.
